Journal of Information Ethics -abstract deadline: February 15, 2023

Greetings! My name is Jeremy Zimmett and I am the guest editor for a special issue of the Journal of Information Ethics. Chief Editor Robert Hauptman and I are soliciting articles on The Ethics of Identity, Data, and Information for Fall 2023. 

JIE is a scholarly, non-peer reviewed journal that focuses on interdisciplinary ethical issues in information sciences. JIE does not charge article processing fees and pays a $50 (USD) honorarium to each author.

This special issue will address how identity intersects with data and information ethics. We welcome articles and columns that touch upon the following questions: How do issues of identity complicate, inflame, or disrupt the dissemination of information? What is the (un)ethical relationship between data and self-embodiment? How do information and data (de)construct individuality online, in business, or in everyday life?

Areas of exploration could include, but are not limited to:

•         The intersection of gender, sexuality, race, and other markers of identity with information/data

•         Algorithmic bias or technological identity politics

•         Consumerism, targeted advertisements, and neoliberalism

•         Social media’s role in misinformation and reality distortion

•         Extended, augmented, or virtual reality’s impact on self-embodiment

Submission Guidelines
The deadline for abstracts (300-500 words) is February 15, 2023. The guest editor will evaluate the abstracts and notify authors of acceptance by February 22, 2023

The deadline for full articles is May 15, 2023. Manuscripts should be 10 to 20 double-spaced pages, plus references. Please do not use footnotes or number the references. Include your abstract, brief author biography, and mailing and email addresses in final submissions. The guest editor will review all full articles and contact authors with any feedback.
